Race #2    Picks:   4-7-3-1

Race #3    Picks:   1-4-8-7

Race #4    Picks:   4-2-7-10

Race #6   Picks:   5-3-4-2

In this never-won-four allowance/optional claiming race at one mile and 70 yards #5 Bal Harbour (3-1) has been running against much tougher in Grade 3 stakes races at Monmouth. We think he will have enough gas in the tank to beat this group.  #3 Mischief Afoot (5-2) ran fourth in the Deputed Testamony Stakes at Pimlico in last. He probably needed that race and if he can get back to his spring form he will be in the mix today. #4 Olliemyboy (9-5) has the class to win today but has not run since March and his recent workouts at Saratoga look uninspiring. We need to see a race before putting him on top, but if he is ready he will be dangerous. #2 Tappin Cat (6-1) ran well in his last three and has a chance today.

Race #7   Picks:   13-7-11-8

Race #8   Picks:   2-5-6-4
